Two new retail stores will be moving into 45-45 Center Boulevard.

The new stores represent the final phase for TF Cornerstone in renting out its Center Blvd commercial space. The company has now leased all its retail space contained within its East Coast Development, which is comprised of eight retail spaces in six buildings.

I Love Kickboxing, the men’s and women’s fitness program with locations around the country, has leased a 2,967-square-foot studio in the 45-45 Center Blvd building, according to Winick Realty, which was the exclusive retail broker for TF Cornerstone.

The firm said that it has also leased a 1,252 square foot space to European Wax Center, a national chain offering a full array of waxing services for men and women, within the same building.

A representative of Winick would not say how much the new tenants paid and was not certain when they were moving in. However, she said the new tenants are currently working on modifying the space.

The two new retail stores will join Mimi & Mo, a children’s salon and clothing store that opened earlier this year, as well as New York Kids Club, which is set to open its 5,000 square foot classroom and gym space later this year in that building.

To date, Latin fusion restaurant Blend, Sweetleaf Coffee and Espresso Bar, and Crank Cycling Studio have all moved in to TF Cornerstone’s East Coast Development. An Italian restaurant is also scheduled to move into 46-10 Center Boulevard.

I love all these new businesses but that whole area has become a sh*t show with cars all over the place. We can permanently kiss street parking goodbye…


Wish they would have opened a UniK. SO much better than any other wax option in the 5 boroughs.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols outside Queens Borough Hall Monday, Jan. 30 after Nichols’ death at the hands of police officers in Memphis, Tenn., made national headlines for the brutality in which the officers beat him.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder. The teacher, George Rosa, 53, was shot in his abdomen by a stray bullet fired by Ford, who was just 17 years old at the time of the shooting but was sentenced as an adult given the severity of the crime, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
